You should be able to do:

  emerge --buildpkg  ipw3945

You might also need:

  emerge --buildpkg ipw3945d ipw3945-ucode

Make sure your /usr/src/linux points to the correct kernel. Otherwise
you can use:

  KERNEL_DIR=/usr/src/linux-2.6.18-gentoo-r6 emerge blah blah

There's little chance that it will work unless the running kernel you
have also has the patches that ipw3945 loads.

It will patch your kernel source on the build machine.

HTH,

Bill
